Crazy GTA 6 "Leak" Leaves Grand Theft Auto Fans Disappointed

A crazy new GTA 6 leak has surfaced online, and while it initially had Grand Theft Auto fans boarding the hype train to Vice City, it turns out the leak was reported wrongly, and as a result, has left fans of the series disappointed. While we know a new Grand Theft Auto game is in development, presumably for PS5 and Xbox Series X, Rockstar Games isn't ready to talk about the next-gen title, and it likely won't be for a while.

That said, when a new leak surfaced online, it got GTA fans desperate for information super excited. As you may have noticed, a new "leak" has been making the rounds involving a website domain for GTA Vice City Online, which is owned by Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive. On the surface level, this domain seemingly confirms that GTA 6, or at least GTA Online, is heading to Vice City. However, there's a problem: it was filed back in 2009, which goes unmentioned in most reports.

In other words, this appears to be nothing more than Take-Two Interactive future-proofing by gobbling up any relevant domain names to GTA Online so they don't have to deal with squatters later.

Back in 2009, GTA 5 was still in the early stages of development, so it's unlikely Rockstar Games knew where GTA 6 was going to be set. So, it's unlikely this involves GTA 6. The current rumors and reports claim GTA 6 will bring back players to Vice City, but this seems to be nothing more than a coincidence.

At the moment of publishing, neither Rockstar Games nor Take-Two Interactive have commented on this "leak," and at this point, it's unlikely they will, leaving GTA fans with nothing but speculation for now.
